Busy week: No more vintage clothing & lots of handmade goodies!

Yep, that's right! No more vintage clothing for me! I'll still wear it and possibly pick things up every now and then to sell, but it will no longer be my main focus. I listed my entire vintage clothing inventory for sale on Craigslist last week and Julie from Violetville Vintage contacted me about the possibility of buying the entire lot. Her mother lives just outside of Austin and found my ad and forwarded it to Julie (she lives in Milwaukee). Julie and I exchanged a few emails, I made an inventory list for her and that was pretty much it. I included an approximate cost of what my inventory was worth and she came back and made me an offer. I accepted her offer and that was that! Her mother and father drove down this past Monday and picked everything up. I was sad and relieved all at the same time. It felt really good to purge my closet and get rid of two years worth of vintage accumulation.

With all my vintage gone, I have had more time to focus on my handcrafted items this week. I've been very fortunate and my friend, Sophia, has placed a ton of orders for my handmade holiday cards. She underestimated how many cards she needed and placed an emergency order yesterday. I stayed up late last night and finished them. Here are a few of the cards from yesterday's lot:
She's also placed an order for 20 thank you cards, which I will post photo's of in the next few days. I've also made some jewelry for Christmas presents this week and I'll post some photo's of those items tomorrow.

Lastly, my vintage website, Lone Star Vintage Clothing, is for sale. I still have approximately 200 days left in my current subscription. The site comes with a shopping cart feature, which links up to Paypal and approximately 5 email addresses. I'm selling all graphics as well. I'm open to all offers!
